National Newspaper Settles Copyright Infringement Claim

I recently acted for a client in respect of a copyright infringement claim against a national red top newspaper. The facts were that the national newspaper published photographs that our client owned, both in its newspaper and on its website, without our client’s consent. After I fired off a robust letter of claim to the national newspaper, I subsequently entered into settlement negotiations with the national newspaper regarding their breach of my client’s intellectual property. I successfully negotiated with the national newspaper’s legal department, so that the national newspaper paid my client a good settlement plus all of their legal costs. The client, needless to say, was very happy to have achieved this settlement and to have their legal costs repaid. National newspapers beware!
